Department of Biology
Welcome to the home of the Integrated Biology Graduate Program (iBio). The Department of Biology at the University of Iowa has a long-standing tradition of top-notch graduate education in research and in teaching. With many positive changes to our curriculum, iBio is taking this strong record into the future.
The iBio program highlights the uniqueness of our departmental research, which centers on determining the fundamental nature and behavior of living organisms and systems. Our research integrates multiple organizational levels, from the molecular to the ecological, as well as multiple scales of biological time, from embryogenesis to aging to phylogenetic analyses, in a wide array of experimental organisms. Key areas of strength include: the molecular evolution of meiosis and of speciation, the molecular genetics of sexual reproduction, the establishment of asymmetry in early development, and the molecular basis of synaptic specificity and axonal targeting.
The Department of Biology offers Integrated Biology Graduate Program (iBio) both for MS and PhD.
